Abbott finally reads judgement
4BC News: Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says he has now read the judgment in the Peter Slipper and James Ashby case, and still stands by Mal Brough.
Mr Abbott came under fire this week for saying he had not read the judgment handed down last Wednesday because he had been "doing very important things for Australia" in the United Kingdom.
The judgment found Mr Brough, the coalition's candidate for Mr Slipper's Queensland seat of Fisher, had worked in "combination" with Mr Ashby to politically damage the former speaker by lodging the case.
When asked in Sydney on Thursday whether he had read the judgment, Mr Abbott said he had.
"Yes I have, and I absolutely stand by Mal Brough," Mr Abbott told reporters.
He refused to comment further.
Minister for Trade Craig Emerson said on Wednesday that Mr Abbott's failure to read the document, which had a seven-page summary, was a "damning indictment".

You are correct Bella in most thinking Australians who would have bothered to read the judgement, they would conclude that it is nothing more than a judgement which is clearly politically motivated and that he has abused his position as a judge to defame numerous people. This is labor for you now manipulating courts and abusing parlimentary priviledge. This coupled with thier attempts in seeking to kill freedom of speach is yet more symptoms of thier real agendas, wake up Australians.mick Friday 21 December, 2012 - 7:20 AM
Well mick, you can read the court's judgement here. It may help. Sorry about the big words.

Yes Bob, plenty of questions, like, why did Miss Gillard as a partner in a law firm plead the case for the AWU Workplace Reform Association to be registered.
As a lawyer and a Union lawyer at that, are we the people to believe that she was just young and naÃ?Â¯ve.
